Britain Stronger in Europe

13 October 2013

Britain Stronger in Europe, the main campaign group campaigning for Britain to stay in the EU, has launched its campaign, suggesting that every person in the North East would be over £450 a year worse off if Britain were to exit the EU.

The official, cross-party In campaign, led by former Marks and Spencer boss Sir Stuart Rose, also suggested that those who advocated exist are not ‘true patriots’, and warned of the economic risks associated with Brexit. Rose added; “I will not allow anyone to tell me I’m any less British because I believe in the strongest possible Britain for business, for our security and our society.”

The £450 per person per year figures, produced by the campaign, highlight the risks associated with leaving the EU. These are especially potent for the North East, with tens of thousands of jobs relying on EU membership, as highlighted by pro-EU comments made recently by the bosses of Hitatchi and Nissan.

The Labour Party had its own official campaign, led by former cabinet minister Alan Johnson, which will officially launch soon.

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
